Repair of front door lock and locking system and additional repair of Yale type lock.
Maidstone Locksmith's John Ayre provided an outstanding service. He was very professional and had excellent knowledge of locks. He assessed the problem very quickly and wasted no time in repairing the lock and fitting new parts which he had with him. He even cleaned up after the job. I would recommend this company very highly as an A star company.

Emergency locksmith due to being locked out.
You never know how valuable a locksmith really is until you lock yourself out (key left on the inside)! We phoned John on a Sunday and he arrived promptly and managed to let us back in using the proper tools rather than us doing an arm injury or damaging the door/lock attempting this ourselves. Very friendly and knowledgable, highly recommended - absolutely worth using a proper locksmith. John also fitted new locks for us when we moved in last year, again excellent service, polite, prompt and fair and reasonable pricing for the jobs requested.

Lock Repair.
Excellent service, very friendly staff and extremely knowledgeable. The bottom deadbolt snapped on my front door late on a Sunday afternoon.
I rang Maidstone locksmiths to see if they could help. John came round within 10 minutes and had me in my house in a few minutes. He was able to put a temporary lock on the door and ordered the parts required to fix it completely. He arranged to come back two days later. He also fit a new barrel and new door handle as well as realigning the door so it didn’t catch on the bottom as it was doing previously.
He did all that for an extremely competitive price. I cannot recommend John enough.

I had just moved into my new property and all the locks needed changing.
WOW! John is lovely! Highly recommended. He visited me to assess what was needed - everything got ordered and he was back two days later.
My back doors were simple - new cylinders, job done! The front door was a pig and needed a lot of TLC to get the locks matching up, but John didn't give up and got it double locking for me, after some perseverance.
My sliding middle door didn't lock at all. John fitted some mushrooms and a new cylinder, but over the next month or so, this door failed to lock! I called John up - he was round and altered it - FREE OF CHARGE! He is great with dogs too :)

Lock Repair.
Our patio door would not lock after being reinstalled by a double glazing company who had tried to repair it but failed. We contacted Maidstone Locksmiths, he came the same day at the appointed time and repaired the lock for a very reasonable price.
I have given the repair two weeks to see if it is still working correctly and it is as good as new. Would have no hesitation in contacting them again if any of our locks failed or we should need an emergency repair. Very polite and professional.

Prompt, professional and polite service. John arrived when he said he would and completed the job quickly. Also adjusted the door for best fit and made sure everything was operating as it should before leaving. All for the price first quoted, which was very reasonable.

Repair front door lock - Not locking.
Great service! Highly recommended. Fast, efficient, polite and very reasonable.
Would definitely use again and recommend.
(Checkatrade review ME14)

Repair/replace multiple locks having just moved into a new property.
Excellent service from start to finish. Prompt response to enquiry. We had just moved into a grade 2 listed property with a variety of old locks not quite working properly. John was very knowledgeable and managed to repair most locks, replacing only two barrels in the end. He left us feeling much more secure than when he arrived. Shame he doesn’t do electrics!
We would have no hesitation recommending him to anyone looking for professional reliable friendly service at a very fair price.
(Checkatrade review ME17)

French windows jammed shut.
A total professional. Spent 10 minutes resolving door jam then a further 20 correcting distortion from original fitting. After all that his charge was nominal.
Cannot recommend John more highly. A true pro.

Installing keypad locks and adjusting lock on outdoor garden gate.
Very pleased with work carried out by John. He installed two keypad locks perfectly and then also adjusted the lock on an outside gate and solved problem with that. It was repeat business as John had done previous work to an excellent standard a couple of years ago.

Exceptional. My elderly Mum locked herself out. John from Maidstone Locksmiths arrived in 30 minutes, did the job, and charged about half the price I'd have expected. A lesser person might have taken advantage of the situation. Absolutely outstanding, honest, competent guy.

Emergency lock out.
Excellent service. Prompt attendance. Very helpful.

My 93yr old Mums front door wouldn’t lock from the inside or out.
John came out within 10 mins of our call on a Sunday morning and during the pandemic, which was very impressive. He found the whole door had dropped out of alignment and fixed it very quickly, leaving Mum safe in her bungalow. I wouldn’t hesitate to call Maidstone Locksmiths again.
